Palin's bloodsport - film footage of aeriel wolf slaughter, and legislation to end it
"Alaska is truly our nation's last frontier. It is also the last place in the U.S. where a few hunters still use aircraft to chase and kill wolves. They shoot these animals from the air or chase them to exhaustion before landing and shooting them point blank."
"Congress passed a law thirty five years ago to put an end to aerial hunting. But Alaska is exploiting a loophole in federal law to resume the practice, not only for wolves, but bears as well."
Sarah Palin recently offered 180 pilots and gunners $150. for each left leg from a fresh killed wolf. Another source states Palin spent $400,000.00 in taxpayer dollars in a massive PR campaign to promote aerial killing of wolves and bears. Watch the video.
"Rep. George Miller (CA) has introduced the Protect America's Wildlife (PAW) Act, legislation to close a federal loophole and curb Alaska's brutal aerial hunting program -- and prevent programs like it from spreading to places like the Greater Yellowstone region." You can find out if your legislator is a co-sponsor here, and sign a petition to show your support here.
Ironically, the appointment of Sarah Palin as Republican VP may be the best thing that ever happened to the wild Alaskan wolf. And the video in the above link might be the worst thing to happen to Sarah Palin.
Remember when Republicans were the leaders in the conservation movement?
